Best Cellphone yet to Come, Phonebloks.
15 sep 2013 18:11

"Phonebloks - A phone worth keeping" The planet has now 5.2 Billion mobile phone handsets in use.** Ever find it odd that your "new" cell phone craps out just at the 18 month mark just as your 2 year phone contract can be renewed? Granted technology is moving so fast that by the time a cell phone hits the market its already out of date, but would it be better to upgrade your cell phone as you saw fit. The million dollar idea by Dave Hakkens for Phonebloks, a cell phone put together in simple cell blocks to customize your own design. The idea is worth having, but gathering the support from major companies is the million dollar question from the 1.45 Trillion US dollars industry. ** Remember every dollar you spend is casting your vote on how you want a company to treat you. More fun landfill facts from the EPA. Environmental Protection Agency. How much e-waste is in the waste stream? In 2009, discarded TVs, computers, peripherals (including printers, scanners, fax machines) mice, keyboards, and cell phones totaled about 2.37 million short tons. Recycling your cell phone helps protect the environment in a number of ways. Cell phones are made from valuable resources such as precious metals, copper, and plastics—all of which require energy to mine and process. Recovering these materials by recycling avoids the need to mine and process new materials, which in turn, conserves our natural resources, and avoids air and water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Cell phones have a number of different metals in them which can be recycled. For every million cell phones we recycle, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered. Recovering metals from used cell phones can reduce extraction of raw metals from the earth. In 2009, approximately 38 percent of mobile devices collected for end-of-life management were reused or refurbished, and 62 percent were recycled for material recovery. **Internet blog Source for facts. used the 2013 edition of the TomiAhonen Almanac,

FYI: Clean up the Bay the Creative Way!
23 aug 2013 10:25

San Francisco city has implemented a 5 cent charge for store to "provide a bag service" hoping that people BYOB, Bring your Own Bag, to stores. The Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association (BASMAA) study recently, revealed that about 1.36 million gallons of trash flows into the Bay every year. "This is 100 percent preventable," said Brosseau to the Mercury News. "Trash doesn't happen by itself. If we can get people to modify their behavior, we'll make huge gains." The Bay Area has a deadline to clean up the bay by 2014 otherwise they will be fined, meaning the taxpayers. So in efforts to contribute as a Bay Area Resident, here is a promotional video as well as some cool project people have done with their extra plastic bags.
